Norah Jones
The Fall
(Blue Note)
Release: 17 November


Norah Jones is debuting her latest as part of NPR’s “Exclusive New Music” series. You can stream the album in its entirety over at the NPR website. This time around, Jones worked with the likes of Ryan Adams and Tom Waits, but her new album is no doubt still very jazzy, very adult contemporary.

01 Chasing Pirates
02 Even Though
03 Light As A Feather
04 Young Blood
05 I Wouldn’t Need You
06 Waiting
07 It’s Gonna Be
08 You’ve Ruined me
09 Back To Manhattan
10 Stuck
11 December
12 Tell Yer Mama
13. Man of the Hour

Don’t get too excited, “Heaven Can Wait” is not a cover of the Meat Loaf ballad from Bat Out of Hell, but the wispy voices of Charlotte and Beck over the otherwise chunky, clumsy track from the upcoming IRM (releasing in January) has its own appeal. The album’s title track is also available to download with an e-mail sign-up at Charlotte’s web site.
